Think life’s treating you bad? You could be Wallace Weatherholt. He lost his hand while trying to feed an alligator and then he gets fined on top of that since he did it illegally. Talk about insult to injury.The Florida Airboat Captain was taking a family from Indiana on a tour of the Everglades. He wanted to show the family an alligator. I guess he was looking for a big tip. Well, he hung a fish over the side of the airboat and an alligator takes the bait along with his hand. Unfortunately, even though the hand was recovered it couldn’t be reattached.

Weatherholt was charged with a second degree misdemeanor charge for illegally feeding the reptile and will be in court on August 22, 2012.
